Wind-Gone-Mad | [L. Ron Hubbard]

Wind-Gone-Mad

In the last days of pre-World War II China and the rise of Communism, Jim Dahlgren, representative of the Amalgamated Aeronautical Company, has had enough of the fatalistic brand of diplomacy from other nations that claim to want a united China, one that can resist invasion from without and treason within - but which refuses to intervene and prevent it's demise. When Dahlgren disappears - purportedly to find a mysterious aviator, the man called "Wind-Gone-Mad" - he ignites a series of actions which just may spell disaster.

Publisher's Summary

Who is Wind-Gone-Mad? He is an ace pilot, a fearless fighter, and the ultimate defender of a war-torn China. But like the storied hero Batman, he is also an enigma, a man in disguise, his true identity shrouded in mystery. And, as with the Caped Crusader and the Joker, he faces one ruthless nemesis above all - a man known simply as "The Butcher."

The epic battle has been set into motion by Jim Dahlgren - an American executive with the Amalgamated Aeronautical Company. He is determined to give China a fighting chance against The Butcher - and against the Western diplomats whose sole interest in the country is to profit from its internal strife. China's only chance, Dahlgren realizes, is the legendary Wind-Gone-Mad.

To "The Butcher," China is a side of beef to carve up and serve at his pleasure. But when Wind-Gone-Mad flies into the action, it may well be "The Butcher" who ends up being dead meat. Ultimately, the only thing more thrilling than the mystery man’s fighting spirit is the true nature of his identity.

As a young man, Hubbard visited pre-Communist China three times, where his closest friend headed up British intelligence. In a land where communists, nationalists, warlords and foreign adventurers schemed for control, Hubbard gained a unique insight into the treacherous and bloody battles for domination in the region. In addition, his personal experiences as a pilot gave his air stories a vivid sense of reality that no other writer could match. Combining this with his first-hand knowledge of China gave him the opportunity to create stories such as Wind-Gone-Mad, which left readers feeling like they had lived the adventures themselves.

Also includes the Asian adventures Tah, the tragic story of a twelve-year-old boy betrayed by his father - and by his life; and Yellow Loot, in which the pursuit of a priceless stash of ancient amber leads to a heart-stopping chase on the Great Wall of China.
